Spring Break Daytrips: Hard Labor Creek State Park

Posted: Updated:
RUTLEDGE, Ga. -

It's been a busy week searching for the perfect Spring Break stops in North Georgia, and we bring it to an end in a place where there's something for every member of the family to do.

Hard Labor Creek State Park is just a stone's throw from Atlanta, located off of I-20 in Rutledge. The nearly 6,000-acre park is well-known for its challenging golf course, which boasts what some call "the hardest starting hole in Georgia." Along with golf, there are 24 miles of trails for hiking and horseback riding and camping accommodations including 20 cottages and a campground. It's a place where Spring Breakers can hit the beach without going to the coast, thanks to a lakeside beach open to swimmers during summer months.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken has been having a wonderful Spring Break traveling the state, and got to explore Hard Labor Creek State Park. Click on the videos above to check it out!
